UK - To help counter the increasing problem of tractor and machinery theft, John Deere has announced that all its Mannheim-built tractors will be fitted with the official CESAR Scheme Datatag security system as standard, starting later this year.

This will cover all 5M and 5R Series, 6030 Standard and Premium Series, 7430 and 7530 models. John Deere dealers will also be trained to install Datatag on other product lines in due course, where it is not available ex-factory.

Datatag ID Limited, which operates the CESAR (Construction & Agricultural Equipment Security and Registration) scheme, is the European market leader in security identity systems for a range of manufacturing sectors, including ATVs, motorcycles and scooters, horseboxes and trailers, and construction and plant equipment.

CESAR already has wide support in the agricultural and construction markets, including the backing of the Construction Equipment Association (CEA), as well as the police, the Home Office and the British Machinery Insurers Association (BMIA). The AEA announced its support for the scheme and the Datatag security system last year, in association with the CEA.

On installation of the Datatag system, unique tamperproof CESAR registration plates are prominent fitted to the tractor to deter theft or vandalism, along with additional state of the art ID technology, including miniature transponders, Datadots and a unique forensic DNA solution.
